      My research examines the roles of different cells mediating sexual transmission of HIV in male genital tissue. Due to their proximity to the tissue surface, I am particularly interested in Langerhans cells (LCs), an ...
    • Bella Donna 

      Cai, Geping (2010)
      "One of Van Gogh’s masterpieces? This is part of the leaf surface of the herb Belladonna under Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). As its name gives, the belladonna leaf epidermis is wrinkled with these velvety swirls, ...
    • Beyond the Naked Eye 

      Rahman, Mohammad (2010)
      This image illuminates the contours and difference in densities of a seemingly contourless and homogeneously uniform hydrogel. The image is a fluorescence composite of three wavelengths that allow for the boundaries and ...
    • Bifurcation 

      Arko, Charles (2009)
      The drawing was created to explore new geometric relationships based on linework which converges and “bifurcates.” The lines converge at the center of the page, then bifurcate outward at the edges, to create areas of ...
    • Blurring the Line 

      Carlson, Gordon (2010)
      Project LifeLike is an attempt to create realistic and emotive avatars for computer systems. While computer graphics generate good looking characters, the ability of an avatar to express genuine emotion remains difficult. ...
    • Bone Collector/ Case Closed 

      Jonsson, Maria (2010)
      Stories told to me, experienced by me or collected from newspapers in Sweden and Scandinavia serve as the basis for an investigation into my own and my family’s history; a history that extends into a political sphere of ...
    • Book Wall 

      Pepple, Lindsay (2009)
      Library design, I have found, is remarkably consistent especially with regard to its treatment of books, with permanent storage consisting of ubiquitous rows of separated stacks. The image I submitted is from my work to ...
    • The Brain In Silico 

      Sweetman, Brian (2009)
      Intracranial dynamics describes the interactions of blood flow, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and deformable brain tissue. While the physical properties of cranial fluids and brain porosity are known, no comprehensive ...
    • Brain Waves 

      Guan, Rui (2010)
      Twelve hours after a mouse brain is sliced into mere micrometers and suspended in an oxygen-infused nutrient media, it still retains its electroencephalographic waves. These waves are recorded with glass electrodes with ...
    • Broad-nosed bat_Platyrrhinus incarum, Peru 

      Velazco-Garcia, Paul (2007-06-06)
      This photograph is of an Incan Broad-nosed bat (Platyrrhinus incarum) a frugivorous bat from San Martin, Peru. Until recently, Platyrrhinus incarum was considered to be part of Platyrrhinus helleri, a widespread species ...
    • Burn Injury Alters the Intestinal Microbiome and Increases Gut Permeability and Bacterial Translocation. 

      Earley, ZM; Akhtar, S.; Green, SJ; Naqib, A; Khan, O; Cannon, AR; Hammer, AM; Morris, NL; Li, X; Eberhardt, JM; Gamelli, RL; Kennedy, RH; Choudhry, MA (Public Library of Science, 2015-07-08)
      Sepsis remains one of the leading causes of death in burn patients who survive the initial insult of injury. Disruption of the intestinal epithelial barrier has been shown after burn injury; this can lead to the translocation ...
    • Call the Plumber: Improvable Models as Priming Artifacts in Student Engineering Design Activities 

      Dasgupta, Chandan (2015-10-21)
      Within the last decade, there has been an increased emphasis on making engineering education accessible to K-12 students and focus more on making students engineering enabled. Research in this area is in its early stages ...
    • A Case of the Blues: Serotonin toxicity caused by the use of methylene blue and antidepressants 

      Sisk, Melissa (2011)
      My research at UIC is studying digital art tools and how they are used to address the visualization of scientific research. I use 3D modeling and digital painting tools to create pieces addressing problems within the medical ...
    • A Case Study of One History Teacher’s Problem Solving in the Context of Collaborative Reflection 

      Popp, Jacquelynn S (2016-11-04)
      Understanding how teachers identify and address authentic, domain-specific problems of practice on an ongoing basis is fundamental to informing researchers and teacher-educators about how teachers learn. However, despite ...
    • Cave of Eternity 

      Shafiq, Maryam (2010)
      "The corneal epithelium, essential for the integrity and clarity of the cornea, is constantly regenerated by limbal stem cells. These limbal stem cells are present in a specialized region called limbus located between the ...
    • Cell Penetrating Peptide (CPP) 

      Mohandessi, Shabnam (2011)
      "My research aims to label proteins inside living cells with fluorescent molecules. By doing so, we can study a protein’s biological function using a fluorescence microscope. Unfortunately, many fluorescent molecules ...
    • Cell “Flakes” in Winter 

      Yildiz Arslan, Sevim (2011)
      The objective of my study is to gain an understanding of the molecular events in Theiler’s murine encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV) infection resulting in cell death. TMEV is a highly cytolytic RNA virus that causes a persistent ...
